I’m clear up to November with my yearly picture organization duties. I have all the other months pruned, red-eyed, and downloaded to winkflash. Now once I get the pics I need. All I have to do is create the book online. Ha ha ha. It takes awhile. But the end is in sight. I did finish one book this week. A YA novel that was theologically unsound but fun. A girl dies during a robbery and the number of good works and bad works are exactly even. It’s a tie, no heaven, he hell, she has to go back and help the old guy she was trying to rob finish a wish list of things he wanted to do before he dies in 6 months. It was funny, touching, and had some hilarious heaven and hell jokes. Oh and we get to find out the little known fact the the demon Beelzebub was the childhood tutor of Attila the Hun and is a grammar freak, blithely correcting the language related atrocities of his fellow demons as well as vaporizing them with his pitchfork. As well as learning that Hell is getting all of the good techno-geeks and St. Peter has to content himself with a huge notebook full of good and bad deeds until someone with a little computer savvy actually makes it to the pearly gates. What I learned. Move the book along quickly, be funny, be human, and put some poignant memories into the mix.
